Program Curriculum

Tuck Next Step is intensive and transformational. 

At the heart of the Next Step experience is robust academic content that allows participants to build the strong base in business acumen needed to understand the complexities of today’s business world. During live and asynchronous sessions, you’ll be challenged by faculty and your peers—individuals singularly devoted to excellence, whether in service to their country or on the field of play. You'll be taught by a faculty of more than a dozen professors who are experts in a broad range of topics and who teach in the MBA program at Tuck, rated one of the best business schools in the country.

During 85 hours of instruction time, you'll be immersed in business leadership and professional development activities, building new competencies with every new experience. By the end of the program, you will have widened your aperture to the multitude of career options available to you and prepared yourself with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue whatever comes next.

In spring 2022, our virtual program will include live Zoom sessions and 1:1 interaction with our faculty thought-leaders; asynchronous content such as videos, readings, podcasts, and interactive discussion boards; and a leading-edge virtual reality platform that fosters discussion, engagement, and the ability to social network across the cohort, similar to what would occur on-campus during coffee breaks and meals. Participants can expect approximately four hours of live class sessions each day. This daily work complements an additional six hours of self-paced coursework, two or three extracurricular and social events, and one or two study group meetings each week.

Next Step is intensive and immersive, and all participants are asked to devote their full attention to it during the weeks the program is happening. For more information about what a typical program week looks like, please view our sample schedule.
